In this exclusive conference, Ashkan Karbasfrooshan will discuss his learnings and vision of entrepreneurship, from the yin and yang principles, to the importance of creating a balance between all stakeholders, to Plato’s principle of specialization, and finally, to the economic concept of comparative advantage. He will also address the importance of building a strong and complementary team as an essential pillar to achieve success in business endeavours.

Ashkan Karbasfrooshan, CEO of WatchMojo

Over the past 20 years, Ashkan Karbasfrooshan has helped build two of the most successful content brands in the consumer web industry: first AskMen and now WatchMojo.

As a seasoned writer, Ash has authored over a thousand articles on subjects including management, business, relationships, history, sports, pop culture & entertainment, and has interviewed hundreds of newsmakers and celebrities.

Following News Corp./IGN’s acquisition of AskMen, Ash founded WatchMojo and helped it turn into the most successful media brand built on YouTube, surpassing deeper-funded competitors who futilely burned through tens of millions of venture capital.

Today, WatchMojo remains one of the 25 largest YouTube channels of all time. Serving as Chief Executive Officer and Editor-in-Chief, Ash’s vision and execution translated into a pop-culture phenomenon that commands an audience of over 30 million subscribers and 150 million unique monthly viewers who spend 2 billion minutes watching over 300 million videos each month.
